Where can I get a replacement for my Hyundai key fob?

Hey, so I might have misplaced one of my two key fobs. I’ve been trying to figure out what to do but I’m a bit stuck. Option one is heading to the dealer, but those replacements are super pricey.

Any ideas?


You know, it’s probably best to head to the dealer for this. They can deactivate the lost one and set up a new one, which is crucial because right now, someone could potentially access your car with that missing fob.

Also, remember to bring along that tag that came with the fob when you got it - my dealer stressed the importance of keeping it safe for situations just like this.


I’d suggest reaching out to the dealer and asking about reprogramming the eBay fob and any potential issues that might come up.

Keep in mind that only two keys can be registered to a car, so you’ll likely need the dealer’s help to reprogram one new key along with one of your old keys to a unique code.

They usually charge around $80 for labor plus the cost of the key.

Good luck sorting it out!


You can get a replacement Hyundai key fob at auto locksmiths, or online retailers.
